The Machine Child – Course for personal assistents
Time period: 4 weeks (next course pending)
Target group: Care companies, net work for children
The machine child is a combined practical and theoretical training for assistants and network to children with disability. For four intensive weeks, we work partly with the children in the daily environment and partly with theoretical training one morning each week. Here, assistants and other persons in the network gain knowledge that can be directly translated into action and challenge the child on the verge of his ability. You learn the importance of having positive expectations regardless of the starting point.
